Spiritual Growth PlanDevelop the ability to RELAX—to slowdown and be at peace in the presence of a loving God. Good exercise and/or a hobby can be useful in this regard.
Practice an EXAMINATION of conscience that helps you see yourself as Christ sees you—with love, respect, forgiveness. Keeping a small journal can help you see the virtue in your life as well as any faults.
Choose a SPIRITUAL GUIDE—someone who can help you keep in touch with the forgiving and creative presence of Christ in your life. A regular confessor is the best
Starting place for personal spiritual direction.
READ & MEDITATE each day on the life of Jesus Christ and His teachings. A slow prayerful reading of scripture with the Lord is an excellent starting place.
PRAY—each and every day—especially the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, if at all possible. The rosary and other devotions are also important aids to spiritual growth.
Finally, SERVE—volunteer your time and energy, your mind and heart to help others come closer to Jesus Christ and His Church. Give or yourself—the value of a Christian life is not defined by sexual attractions.
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14: 27
